Where can I find English books

To buy new or second hand in the Zug/Zurich area or online, any recommendation?

Try the search function on EF. If you can't find what you are looking for with the regular search, use the Google search of the site. There are literally dozens of threads (some of them 3Wishes has listed for you) on where to buy, borrow and find books.

I've checked Zug Brockenhaus but the collection was pretty small and limited. Do you know where the big ones are?

Thanks very much, could you list some of the authors whose books you have?

I've also discovered that Zug public library has a good collection of English books, audio book CDs and DVDs. In Zurich, some libraries also have English book collections.

Not at the moment, I'd have to check and make a list
Some Chris Ryan, Daniela Steele, Ken Follet, Jack Higgins....


My other half is planning to donate them to the ZIWC who I think then sell them at fete's or something like that
